Gabbi Garcia gave her fans a glimpse of Casa Lopez, her family's new house, in her latest vlog on YouTube.
Gabbi, whose full name is Gabriella Louise Ortega Lopez, found this 350-square-meter property in Parañaque in October 2018. Her family moved in by late 2019.
Here's the foyer, which has a pink custom-made chair that's supposed to be in her closet.
Gabbi announces that the flowers are fake, “Not real. Siyempre, maganda lang kasi yung feeling when you enter the house.”
The cabinets in the foyer house mementoes, including Gabbi’s awards—one of which is a trophy from The PEP List Year 3 in 2016, where she was hailed the Female Stylish Star of the Night.
Here's the dining area, where the main attraction is the table where family and friends shall feast.
The Kapuso actress reveals, "When we were scouting for furniture, I told my mom and dad that I wanted the dining table, the dining area, and the sofa to be special. Parang yun iyong main parts ng bahay.
“Pinag-ipunan talaga namin itong dining table."
They bought the table, made of inner-core wood, from the Makati store Fashion Interiors.
“Green, because we wanted to go for a tropical glam kind of feel in our house. It’s not too tropical and not too glam at the same time,” says Gabbi.
Of the bar area, here is trivia from the actress: “Nakakatawa kasi noong ginagawa pa lang ito ng mga karpintero, tinatanong ni Daddy, ‘Sino ba ang nagpagawa ng bar area, sino ba umiinom sa bahay?’"
Then she admits, "But I was the one who suggested it. I love entertaining people. I love having my friends over kaya may bar tayo.”
The living room has a 10-seater C-shaped sofa.
It also has a plant gallery for Gabbi, who explains, “Sobrang hindi ako magaling sa plants dati, pero ngayon, natututo na ako. I’m still learning kasi hanggang ngayon, namamatayan pa rin ako ng plants.”
The powder room also has a gold and white motif...
...with this mini-chandelier as its centerpiece.
Gabbi explains why it got there. “Sobra lang siya sa walk-in closet ko, so sayang naman, di ba? We had to make use of it, so dad decided to put it here sa powder room to make it more posh, kasi gusto namin maarte pa rin iyong feeling ng guest kahit nasa banyo sila.”
Gabbi brought home a souvenir from one of her major TV projects. Remember the sword that Alena, Gabbi's character, used in the prime-time series Encantadia?
Its replica now lies in a cabinet in the hallway leading to her room.
Gabbi plans to buy a case for it. “I was supposed to have a stand here. This is my sword in Encantadia.
"It’s supposed to be here, but wala pa iyong lalagyanan niya, so it’s just here for the meantime.
"But yeah, this is my sword from Enca.”
She continues, “Nagpagawa ako before the show ended para may bitbit akong piece ni Alena.”
Gabbi’s boyfriend, Khalil Ramos, who was taking the video, asked her to demonstrate her signature pose.
The 21-year-old star follows, and remarks, “I’m a lefty, e. Kaya buong Enca, left iyong gamit ko.”
Her dad Vince's man cave has three bikes, a mini-train from Gabbi’s mom, and his McFarlane toy collection.
There's also a music room, the tambayan of her sister Alex, a music major.
Gabbi’s sister has a collection of guitars and a six-piece drum set.
Another trivia: Gabbi knows how to play the drums!
Gabbi says, “Kasi inalisan kami ng drummer noong Battle of the Bands, so I had to take over since ako lang iyong may drum set sa bahay and kayang matuto. But in fairness, natuto naman ako.”
